Grapefruit & Avocado Salad with Grapefruit Vinaigrette

A side salad full of citrus — grapefruit segments and a grapefruit vinaigrette — is ideal for an at-home Valentine's Day dinner, especially when served with our Lobster Thermidor and Parmesan Twice-Baked Potatoes. It's light enough to accompany multiple courses, and the citrus cuts through the richness of the rest of the meal.

Butter (or butterhead) lettuce is a family of lettuces that include the varieties Boston and Bibb. They feature small, round, loosely formed heads with soft, butterytextured leaves.

Test Kitchen Tip

For convenience, you can use a jar of purchased grapefruit segments and grapefruit juice, such as Del Monte.


Suprême grapefruit by slicing off top and bottom to expose pulp, then slice off the rind, following the curve of the fruit. Slice out each segment, cutting toward the center of the fruit along the membrane wall. Set aside segments and squeeze juice from membranes into a bowl.

Whisk together 2 Tbsp. grapefruit juice, oil, vinegar, honey, and Dijon for the vinaigrette; season with salt and pepper.

Toss lettuce, avocado, parsley, shallots, and grapefruit segments with vinaigrette; top with hazelnuts.
